What's the average cost of annual property tax of Lakeview/Andersonville/Rogers Park areas?

Tim Moore answered:
Can escrow papers be signed at the realtor's office or at the buyer's home? I thought papers must be signed at the title company.
You can sign them in a phone booth (if there still are any out there) as long as there is a notary to witness and sign they were there to see you sign them.
